Introduction

This guide will walk you through the process of replacing dead speakers on the iHome iP37.

  • Pry the exterior housing off the iHome iP37. You may need extra leverage to do this.

  • Note: This step is the most difficult due to the way it is attached. The glue holding the exterior housing to the internals does not break easily. You may want to use iFixit's iOpener to soften the glue.

  • Note: The process is the same for both the upper half and the lower half. To identify the halves, look for these details: the upper half has a metal grid, and the lower half has buttons. If you are replacing any other components, pry off the lower half.
